Description

When Hannah Blue joins the Adventurer's Club, she pictures campfires and star-filled nights. And she imagines a temporary respite from the ever-present shadow of her parents' divorce, her siblings' inability to cope in the real world without her vigilance, and her boyfriend, Ben, who, it seems, is looking for a commitment. Most of all, she needs a break from the irresistible pull of her father, with his unpredictable moods and imaginary health scares. But when his latest illness turns out to be real, Hannah finds herself growing addicted to the freedom she finds in the silty caves deep beneath the sunlit woods, on the crevasses accessible only with crampons and ice axes. It's as if she feels more herself when she's outside--until she realizes that the people she keeps leaving may not always wait for her to come back.
In this remarkable accomplishment of style and storytelling, Gwendolen Gross gives us an appealing, spirited heroine and a fresh look at the high stakes of love's many expectations.
